What Is This Unfamiliar Feeling? Could It Be Happiness?

Been feeling odd lately.  Sort of fizzy.  Frilly round the edges, or is it frilly at heart?  Peculiar sensation, long forgotten.  It comes and goes.  I find myself singing or humming, and am generally more… exuberant than I have been for many a long year.

I have my worries and my fears still, and plenty of regrets, but they seem somehow more proportional.  I have troubles ahead, but, unusually, I find myself thinking ‘I will deal with it’, where I used to think ‘WAAAH!’  I doubt myself a lot of the time, still give other people the benefit of the doubt perhaps too often, but trust myself a little more.

As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

People seem to like me, and I seem to notice it.  And if, maybe, some of them might not like me, that might not be such a catastrophe.

All very odd, but it makes a pleasant change!
